TUCSON, Ariz. — New Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez has re-hired Robert Anae as offensive line coach.

Anae coached the Wildcats' O-line for one season under former head coach Mike Stoops and interim coach Tim Kish. A former BYU player, Anae has 18 years of coaching experience, including six at his alma mater before arriving in Tucson.

Rodriguez hired Rod Smith as co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Thursday. He had previously hired co-offensive coordinator and running backs coach Calvin Magee, receivers coach Tony Dews and defensive backs coach Tony Gibson.

Rodriguez said he plans to hire one more offensive coach, to work with tight ends.
